In order for a smooth and problem-free transformation to take place in a digitalizing education system, efficient management is needed. Thus, educational managers need to improve their skills and develop behaviors suitable for taking education systems into the digital age. Social networks enable leaders to become digital citizens by embracing and implementing "Open Leadership." Acceptance of technology and self-efficacy in technological leadership are both seen as factors that can have positive or negative influences on the new leadership styles. This study aims to investigate the relationship between open leadership, digital citizenship, technology acceptance and self-efficacy in technological leadership. Working with a group of 153 education managers, the research was conducted using a relational screening model. Following multiple regression analyses, it was found that technology acceptance and self-efficacy in technological leadership positively influences digital citizenship at medium level and that self-efficacy in technological leadership and digital citizenship positively influences open leadership.
